Dieting Can Prove Dangerous for Kidney Disease Patients
Date:2/24/2012

FRIDAY, Feb. 24 (HealthDay News) -- Overweight or obese people with chronic kidney disease may suffer further kidney damage if they use certain weight-loss methods, a new study warns.

Weight-loss medications and high-protein diets are not recommended for people with chronic kidney disease because these methods may lead to further kidney damage, the researchers said in the study, published online recently in the International Journal of Obesity.

"Rather than using fad diets or diet pills, overweight and obese people with kidney disease may adopt a weight loss plan that incorporates a low-protein, low-calorie diet, regular physical activity and close f
